A few new series coming soon

A few high profile series will be appearing over the next month or so. On Monday Oct 3rd Terra Nova debuts. Never too excited about dinosaurs myself, but it will appeal to some I'm sure, and hopefully it will start better than Mr Spielberg's other recent Exec Prod series Falling Skies, which took a while to get going. Sky 1HD also has a homegrown comedy series, Spy, starting later this month. This looks quite good from the trailers they're now running. Another series coming soon is American Horror Story, a supernatural drama created by Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck, Glee) and Brad Falchuck (Glee), starring Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Jessica Lange. The trailer here is for the US premiere - it won't arrive here until November. And if you like that kind of thing, check out The Fades on BBCHD which started a couple of weeks ago but is still on iPlayer - creepy stuff.

When does Pan-Am start on BBC? It has a Mad Men vibe and it's already started in the US.

Any word when Dexter will return to FX HD? The new season starts tonight in the US, but FX have been virtually a year behind with Dexter...

Crazy isnt it, in the 21st century, with the technology we have, that TV and film companies still cant release tv programmes and films worldwide at the same time or within a day or 2.

no wonder illegal downloads are up so high - and then you get a company like Sky and channels like Atlantic - again thanks to downloading a lot of people wont miss the shows they want - but ultimately its the companies who miss out on audience ratings and in turn money for advertising etc.

why doesnt the whole industry just put a stop to things like this and work together to get all the money they can from the consumer? instead they continue to fight among themselves trying to get one up on each other and they all end up missing the boat!

or am i just in a dream world thinking they could change? probably....
